We stayed in the towers in March 2013.
The good things:
Room was clean and in pretty good shape. Everything worked in the room except we didn't have a channel guide for the TV. Twigs Restaurant was awesome. Food was wonderfully tasty and decor was new, fresh and stylish. Shuttle to Mayo ran even with 7 inches of fresh snow. They were on time and friendly staff. Cost was lower than hotels attached to Mayo Clinic.
The not-so-great things:
Lobby was very dirty and in a state of disrepair. Elevators were dirty, smelled and the floors were all cracked and sticky. Room was cold - I had to bump the heat up to 78 to get the room warm. Hallways on every floor and the whole entire first floor was VERY cold. I couldn't imagine going from the pool to your room down the hallway. Pool appeared clean but sauna didn't work. Several machines in the arcade didn't work. Fitness room was okay. Staff were often joking around and were loud and spoke mostly in Spanish & some were dressed in what I would call almost a gangster style. I really didn't feel safe in that hotel.
